We have just released a new beta version of BoxCryptor which fixes a bug which could cause data loss if you cut and paste a folder within the BoxCryptor drive to another drive, as users reported yesterday. This is now fixed in the new version. Please upgrade as soon as possible by downloading and installing the new version. If you have the automatic check for updates enabled you are informed about the new version.
On a sidenote: Due to user requests, we have released a small command line tool which can be used to enable or disable filename encryption on an already created encrypted folder. If you have an old encrypted folder with plaintext filenames and want to benefit from the new filename encryption feature, you can use this tool to encrypt your filenames. As always, we advise having a backup ready.
/toEncryptedFilenames – Change from plaintext filenames to encrypted filenames
/toPlaintextFilenames – Change from encrypted filenames to plaintext filenames
/root – Location of the encrypted source folder
/password – Use this password
- Example: BoxCryptorControl.exe /toEncryptedFilenames /root C:UsersRobertDropboxSafe /password topSecret
